Linda Sánchez’ Statement on Camp Tax Proposal (February 26, 2014)
Washington, DC- Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-38) released the following statement today after Ways & Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) introduced his tax reform proposal:
“I applaud Chairman Camp for taking a step toward meaningful tax reform,” said Rep. Sanchez. “Although both parties are sure to find faults with parts of the proposal, it is a serious attempt to simplify and improve our outdated tax code.
My staff and I are still reviewing the full details of the bill, but I am encouraged by the acknowledgment that research and development is key to the revival of our domestic manufacturing sector. We must invest in research and development if we want to create good paying jobs for working families in the U.S.
I hope that today’s proposal sparks further serious discussion about how Congress can create a federal tax code that supports American industry and hardworking Americans. We need a tax code that is simpler, fairer, provides economic certainty, and ensures that everyone pays their fair share. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on the committee to accomplish this goal.”
